Change the plot radically, drop hints that the plot has changed, and see if he's the only one in the party going with the regular plot.

Slightly related tangent, I usually wear stufflike this on my hat, because anything On my shirt drives me nuts. Any idea how to do that without embedding it in your skull? I was thinking about riveting a piece of aluminum to the hat and glueing the pin to the aluminum.

So, if my animal companion wolverine is getting hammered in melee and needs healing but is some distance from his druid the druid can't cast Cure Light Wounds as a shared spell and the wolverine benefit from it? Unless he's actually touching the animal companion?

That was the old 3.5 share spells.

Flag on the play. Stormwind fallacy/ either or fallacy. Try to make a point without assuming that people are playing the game wrong.

Insulting an item is NOT insulting a person. You? Not somuch.

but to see support of that from a VC is... disappointing.

Or eye opening to exactly how bad the problem is.

DM's call on that one. I'd allow it.

That leaves plenty of room for other items. The whole 'nobody uses anything but the big 6' spiel is inherently nonsensical. Even if everybody used them... they don't take up a majority of the item slots.

But they still use up your gold. Assuming you have any kind of economy in magic items at all (and since this is the pfs section of the forums, shop s M art, shop magic mart) an item has to be cool and effective enough for its cost to not put the money into the big six instead. It doesn't matter if i have a nose ring an ear ring free if everything in those slots its ridiculously expensive you just don't fill it.

The pins are very cool, but will not be granting a reroll. They're going to try to come up with something else for them to do, so lets crowd source it. And waste time. And make a drinking game out of it.

Obviously the character you're playing is supposed to match the pin.

Silver crusade: +2 to diplomacy checks to end or avoid hostilities. I'm a paladin! of course you can trust me!

Grand lodge: +4 to bluff diplomacy checks to preserve the societies good name. We are professional archeologists.

Exchange: reroll but only for the dayjob check. Since you never know what fell off the back of the truck, it could be worse than your original roll.

Dark archives: +2 on saving throws vs curses and spells and abilities with the [evil] descriptor. Erm. For reasons other than professional courtesy. really.

Scarab sage: +2 on any one knowledge skill check/session as the fragment of a sage jewel the beetle is holding aids another you.

Sovereign court: +2 on any roll to hide your affiliation. (hey, the character isn't the one wearing the pin)

Liberty's edge: +2 Perform oratory and diplomacy to advocate for FREEEDDDOOOOOM! (freedom with less O's need not apply)

of mithral. Its a fact. There's no argument against it.
So it appears it WILL be left up to a GM's opinion of whether the kikko is "mostly made of metal".


That is not a valid opinion. That is the DM making stuff up. This is not a case of table variation, they simply cannot do that in organized play.

It is 25 pounds of iron sewn to cloth, in other words, a boatload of iron. You make that out of mithral, the weight halves the spellfailure drops etc.

I was hoping to have something to show a GM who decided it didn't qualify before I design a PC somewhat around the use of the will affect how much I invest in dex.

Send them here. Have them make an argument that that's the case. I have NO idea what logic they're using to decide that they have a 25 pound shirt that's not made of metal.

Meager Rolmug wrote:

Is that an opinion or do you have some proof? I've bought other stuff based on multiply "opinions" in the past only to have a GM say "nope".

How would you like me to prove anything? They don't say each individual rule, strait out, three times in triplicate.

Kikko armor consists of hexagonal plates made from iron and sewn to cloth. The plates may be hidden by a layer of cloth or left exposed.

So yes, you can make it out of mithral. Its a fact. There's no argument against it.

Shadow Lodge

If you mean Kikko armor? Yes it can be mithral.

Its considered light armor for just about everything your character does with it except proficiency.

Its still considered medium armor for enchantments and the like (so no brawling enchant)

Not sure about armor tricks.

Damn you time zonezzzzzzzz

Shadow Lodge

A creature leaving a square to enter another creatures square IS moving through a threatened square, they're not mutually exclusive events. (just like a wizard walking away from the fighter intent on casting a spell at the end of their movement moves through their own first square and draws the AOO.


So the songbird of doom doing the opposite

is moving through their own square into the fighters.

The difference between them is that the Songbird can't 5 foot step to avoid the aoo. And thats why the WHY of that matters.

If the songbird gets whacked because entering a creatures square is its own provoking event, that goes against the idea that they can tumble in BUT...the bird moving this way should draw 2 AoO's if that the case but he doesn't.

If the songbird gets whacked because he's moving through a threatened square and the 5 foot step exception just doesn't apply, he's getting whacked for moving from a threatened square, the exact sort of thing that tumbling can prevent.

Shadow Lodge

I would think at this point that most large structures would be built with superman carrying them in mind, kind of like that part on your car that you can raise on a jack without breaking anything.

Byakko wrote:
I believe any creature that enters another's square provokes unless it has special rules saying otherwise. Can you give a counter-example?

The question here is WHY its provoking. And there's no clear answer but...

If it was provoking because it was entering a square then a creature moving in SHOULD provoke twice, but it doesn't.

If the creature only provokes once, then it provokes because its leaving a threatened square to enter another square and the only thing the FAQ says is that a 5 foot step won't negate the AoO for leaving a threatened square if you're entering a creatures own space.

Its also entirely possible that there's a way of looking at it that i don't see, or that there isn't any consistency on the issue and some things just do and some things just dont *shrug*

Grodd might be hard on the FX budget of the show, especially if the crew that does Flash have to also spend time on Supergirl and LoT. I don't know if we have reached the technological point where a onscreen big bad for all or most of the season can be a CGI character.

P.S. If anyone needs more Zoom, the same actor plays the main antagonist in the recent thriller/horror movie Curve, which is on netflix right now.

he can be a name on the computer screen for the firsthalf of the season until the big reveal.

Its trivial to have the continual flame cast upon an burnt out dull gray ioun stone and then implant it for the same effect of casting it upon the hand and its only 25 gp to do it.
Implantation isn't trivial, the DC's are pretty high.

But legal. You have months to get it right

Mike Brock wrote:

There is no balance issue as the ioun stones still work exactly the same way they do if floating around your head. They still cost double what a slot item costs. They do not stack in a different manner. The only difference is they don't float around your head. As a GM, I've never targeted a floating ioun stone on a PC. I don't know of any other GM who has either. Simply put, the NPC usually has more to worry about than knocking a ioun stone away.

So, that only leaves the time and rolls. As there is unlimited time between scenarios, this really doesn't matter to be honest. I don't think it is worth the time or effort to legislate any of these since they really don't create an imbalance in anyway.


Shadow Lodge

the problem with grodd taking on the flash is they'd need to write something grodd level clever for grod to do to take down the flash.

Shadow Lodge

I think they need a villian that isn't just flash's evil twin for a change.

Shadow Lodge

But its only one provoking event.

If "entering a creatures square" is what provokes the attack of opportunity a tiny creature entering another creatures square would provoke 2 attacks of opportunity, but they don't. Its just the one, and it seems to be movement related.

Shadow Lodge

Nope. You were not that smart at hogwarts and did not learn the spell

If your GM permits a wand in a spring loaded wrist sheath (5g), it would cost a swift instead of a move to draw but still the usual standard action to activate.

Scrolls have table variation on fitting in a spring loaded wrist sheath. Wands should not

Spring loaded wrist sheath. See wrist sheath.

This is a sheath designed to be strapped to your forearm and hidden under a long sleeve. The sheath can hold one forearm-length item such as a dagger, dart, or wand, or up to five arrows or crossbow bolts.

Actually, I'm in a Kingmaker campaign with them, so we're constantly having wilderness encounters at unpredictable times of the day.


You've wandered into the PFS section of the boards, and while you can play that with kingmaker (i think) that sort of encounter tends to be the rarity.

Action economy, though. It's hard to justify chewing up a round's worth of stuff just to add feather-step to your mount (i.e. for my ranged mounted ranger).


You really don't need to. Its a 10 minute level level spell, so you just burn 3 charges during your typical dungeon . You won't have it on if you're outside and running through the jungle , but those situations tend to be pretty rare, and the boots would take the same action economy now anyway.
